Small Sometimes can mean Great: A Contemporary Apartment in Cape Town

ARRCC, formerly Antoni Associates, took this De Waterkant, Cape Town apartment, which was just an empty, narrow space before, and transformed it into a contemporary apartment with angular components. Located in a trendy area of Cape Town, ARRCC was asked to bring that vibe to the duplex apartment and the result is a dynamic, urban space that floats above the city.
